Recently the inaugural issue of Word Weavings, a new journal of syllabic poetry, was published by Colleen M. Chesebro and Jules Paige (nom de plume). It is The Moons of Autumn and contains various syllabic poetry forms including haiku, tanka, haibun, cinquains, and more.This pedometer geek writer will freely admit that many of the poetry forms were unfamiliar. What is particularly innovative about this journal is that every poetry form is introduced and explained.
The following haiku and butterfly cinquain were selected by the editors for inclusion:
her fingers stained
she picks the last apple
on the tree
“ Two Different Hunters”
the hunt begins
the hunter wants a prize
will the deer’s rack be large enough?
the hunters cull the larger herds
to a shelter
~Nancy Brady, 2021
To read more of the poetry, the book is available as an e-book and a paperback at Amazon. Thanks Colleen and Jules for including some of my poetry in The Moons of Autumn. Congratulations for putting together such a novel collection of poetry.
